Using a Bust Dart Calculator can take all the mystery out of working a horizontal bust dart. Everything is simple once you know how to do it, right?
Bust Dart Calculator (BDC)
I am circling in on being able to make this available online so you can calculate your bust darts in any garment, worked flat or worked in the round. We even tell you where to put the dart! This is Fit For Your Body.
What I Need From You!
I need some Research and Development support for the Bust Dart Calculator.
This is an opportunity for you to help me put this tool online. I need to spend some time creating the data base to make this happen. Time is precious resource and I need to know whether this is important enough to you to spend my time and energy on putting it online.
Fortunately, you can vote! If you can, please contribute to the Jill Wolcott Knits Research & Development Fund, and/or you can also leave encouraging comments expressing your support!
$15 of Support will give you beta access to the online BDC for 4 months.
Support of $30 will give you beta access to the online BDC for the entirely of 2023.
The Research & Development Fund is set up with Name Your Price, with a suggested minimum of $5, so just like public radio and public TV, you may give what you can!
Can’t afford to give financial support? There are other ways you can help, such as participating in the Clapham workbook test!
What Is Currently Available
I want to remind everyone that what I do is covered by my trademark and copyright, but this allows you to look at the public-facing documents! Of course I would love to talk more deeply to anyone about this. Email me.
